I don't know about you, but my wallet still hasn't fully recovered from the holidays — and now Valentine's Day is swiftly approaching. So this year, in a mutual effort to stick to our budget, my wonderful husband and I have shamelessly agreed to set a spending limit of just $25. And to be honest, I kind of love it. It's just enough cash to get creative with our gifts but not enough to do any damage.

In fact, don't tell him this, but I've already started shopping around and found so many heartfelt (and hilarious) options for $25 or less. Here's a list of my 33 top picks, just in case you want to steal them for your own sweetheart.


Kissable lips are such a cute idea. Bring a smile to your Valentine's face (and add a thoughtful touch to their skincare routine) with this special lip treatment. The LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask is incredibly hydrating, smells absolutely amazing and genuinely makes lips look smoother and plumper overnight. Bonus? You can choose your favorite scent.


Remind your loved one that they're irreplaceable with this mug that reads, "You are my favorite." The stoneware cup is both microwave- and dishwasher-safe and holds up to 15 ounces of their favorite coffee, tea or hot cocoa.


For the little Valentine on your list, we highly recommend this heartfelt board book. Over the course of the story, the earnest Little Blue Truck delivers Valentine's Day cards to his farm animal friends and wonders if he'll receive any in return. The book is full of fun textures for tiny hands to explore. And if you need ideas for slightly older kiddos? Try friendship bracelets, graphic T-shirts or lip-printed makeup bags.


These adorable handcrafted glasses have gone viral on TikTok (and for good reason), so we already know they will win your besties over. Snag them all in a Galentine's red, or gift a variety of pink, white and blue hearts based on your BFF's favorite colors.


In the language of love and appliances, a regular mini waffle maker says that you like each other, but a heart-shaped mini waffle maker says that you're head over heels. (We don't make the rules!) Clue your partner in by leaving this Dash Mini Waffle Maker in the kitchen. The device heats up in seconds, so you can whip up breakfast and then get right back to snuggling.

Williams Sonoma

Send the message that they're the only one for you or start your child's Valentine's Day on the sweetest note with these nostalgic conversation heart cookies. Every batch is lovingly crafted from quality ingredients and features endearing phrases like "XOXO."


If your partner values conversation and quality time, then surprise them with "Let's Get Deep: Questions for Couples." This intimacy-building card deck contains 400 prompts like, "Do you sing in the shower?" and "What first attracted you to me?" After a few rounds, they'll feel like they know you on a whole new level.

Fresh flowers are nice, but nothing beats something this permanent. Put a lasting spin on the traditional Valentine's Day bouquet by handing your partner a birth flower ring. You could also engrave the disc with a flower that represents your anniversary, child(ren) or beloved pet.

Toast to the place you met or fell in love with these sentimental cocktail glasses. You can choose from nearly 40 major cities (like Atlanta, Austin, Denver and Portland), and then the designers will etch the grid onto the glass. Streets and neighborhoods are interspersed throughout for one beautiful keepsake.

The only thing better than champagne and roses? Champagne- and rose-scented shower steamers. (Seriously.) Encourage your loved one to enjoy some R&R by leaving this beautifully packaged gift set by the tub. Each disc is infused with essential oils to hydrate the skin and provide some aromatherapy.

Give your spice-loving guy a good laugh with these cheeky chili pepper socks. They're woven from performance blend material, so they're super soft and surprisingly durable.

If you can't get away for Valentine's Day, then a romantic night-in is the next best thing. Treat your partner to an evening of decadent, dippable bites with this mini fondue tray. The small, but mighty machine includes four fondue forks and three sections for strawberries, kiwi slices, pretzel twists, marshmallows and more.


The ultimate Valentine's Day gift for kids and kids at heart, this LEGO Rose Building Kit will provide hours of entertainment. You can construct the realistic stems side-by-side or let them work through the instructions on their own — just make sure to provide a vase so they can display the token of your love when they're done!

Try heart-shaped coupe glasses, a bottle of bitters or rosebud ice molds.
